The above remark is what a ne^ro

was a regular hard sheil Baptist, and
after each sale day all new purchases
had t? be immersed regardless
of the condition of the weather. The
master had bought about six or eight
and had to break the ice to get a hele
to put them into the water. One
burley fellow was so heary that he
slipped back and it was with great
difficulty that they got him out alive.
And as he came out snorting and
blowing, iu a tone of complete disgust,

Mr. Thomas Spurrier, of the Longtown

house was burning. Last week Mr.
Jno. Reynolds, who iives near Mr.
Spurrier, awoke about midnight aud
found that his dwelling was on flr?.
His only way of escape was c ut ff by
the fire, and he had to cut out some
logs and and get hi? family out through
the opening. Mr. Reynolds wai crawling
out between the Jogs when some
of his neighbors reached the place.
He wa? in his night clothes and was
smoking his pipe when they saw him
coming out. He was slighty burnt,
bat is better. Had his axe been out
doors his family might hare been
burned to death. He was rery much
excited and did not eren know that he
was smoking until told of it. He
must hare got burnt while trying to

CORBETT WON THE FIGHT.
After all the legal bluster and the
military parade, Corbett and Mitchell
fought in Jacksonville at 2.28 o'clock
p. m. ?n the 25th. Mitchell made a
good showing at first, but was knocked
out in three rounds. At the second
round Corbett knocked Micheil down
and tried to jump on him and struggled
hard with the referee to gel loo*e before
Mitchell could gain bis feet. But for
the efforts of the referee he would
hare lost ths fight #n a. foal. The
gong sounded and time was called;
Corbet seemed to hare lost bis head
and acted like an enraged ball. In
the tbirct round lie actea tne same way.
After knocking Mitchell down and
while bleod was pouring from his
nose and month, Corbett's Mends bad
to held him to keep him from breaking
Corbett and Mitchell were both
arrested after the light and gare bond
in the sum of $5,000. The charge
was "fighting by previeus appointment."
Befoae the fight chief pelice of

they did not weigh enough to be in

HOW COTTON SEED OIL IS MADE
For the benefit of dio-e who have
never been in an oil miil we will .explain
the process, feeling tiiat it
would interest many of our readsrs in
this county. The first thing in this
business, as in all businesses in the
South, commences with ? negro. As
the seed lie in the warehouse in the
condition ther an; when ginned, they
are picked up i;i a shovel br a negro
and thrown into a hoppar. From this
hopper thev ure carried on a belt t? a
revolving >i:ier mm! all sand and dirt
is "sifted out.'' By means of a
convejor, w lii ;h resemble a big
augur, the >enl travel, ur"t? r being
clcatied, to another belt which lut
eup* riveted on it, and thin belt carries
them up into the top of the Ivri'ding.
There they arc put in the linter*, or
what might bj called rc-ginnm<r machines.
These machines take off althe
lint left 011 the seed br an ordinary
gin. This lint is carried to an ordinary
cotton press and packed in balet*.
After the sred arc rc-^i lined they drep
down through a traujh into * huller.
This machine cats thetn into km*ll
particles. In tins condition they are
kn*wn as hulls and meats. The next
thing to be done is to separate the
hulls from the meati; ?o they are taken
from the huller 0:1 a belt to the upstairs
again. There they pais through
another revolring sifter or screen and
the meats drop out while the hulls
pass on te the end 01 the screen and
fall out at the open end iito a screw
conveyor, and this carries them, just
like a big aagur carries the chips to
the hull home.
Here we part company with the
hulls. The meats, however, go down
stairs again and are crushed between :
hearr iron rollers for the purpose of
bruising the oil cells so that the minutes
part will come in contact with
the steam while cooking. After being
crushed the seed arc again taken upstairs
for the purpose of elevation
only. From the upstairs they are
dropped into the cooking vessal called i
a heator, and then the proccss of cook- ]
iug is carried on. When in the experience
of the "cook" it is "done,"
it is lot out into a drawer and dropped
from this drawer into the cake former.
The cake former has a camel's hair j
cloth or kelt on it. The meats are j
put in the middle and the end3 lapped
over them, then sufficient pressure is
pat on them to form a temporary cake,
which is lifted on a large iron shovel
and plaoed in the press. The press is
turned on and the oil is forced out
through this camel's hair cloth and
runs to a tank under the floor. After
removing the pressure, the "cake,"
for we have parted company with the
meats, is thrown on a table and the
cloth stripped off. This cake is piled
up to dry, ana wnen sumcienuy ury i?
ground into cotton seed meal. The
seed travel about 250 to 300 feet from
firit to last and are not touched by
hand after "cuffy" puts them in the
iopper at the start.
